Introducing the Oxford Centre for Technology, Innovation and Skills

The Oxfordshire Centre for Technology, Innovation and Skills (opening in September 2016) is being developed with an investment of £8m to build a high-spec facility for technology-related learning in Oxfordshire. Their aim is to enhance the experience of their students and equip them for the growing labour market in the region.

The centre, based in Blackbird Leys, will support training in the area of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) by providing improved facilities for education and training in emerging green technologies.
